Summer Thus Far

We have had quite an eventful Summer so far. We love Summer at our house, hanging out outside, going on bike rides, and having lots of smores! It started out with some trauma for Quinn, and she has finally gotten back to normal, for the most part. She goes to Summer School and absolutely loves riding the bus. Lexi took off for a week to Montana to spend a week with my mom and we missed her terribly! It is amazing what a help she is around the house, I really needed my little helper! Hudson is getting big and is so much fun!
Here are some more details of some of the things we have done....

Summer Dance Recital

Lexi and Quinn had their Summer Recital on June 6. It was Quinn's first recital and it was a complete riot! There are four girls in her class including her, and they started out so well, and then Quinn got behind, she can do the dance, but she is just a little slower than the other girls. Well...I think she got sick of being behind, so she just did her own dance. The whole auditorium was roaring with laughter, because it was so stinkin' cute! I asked her when we got home if she kind of forgot her dance. She told me "No, I was just doing a solo." It was awesome! We also got to see Lexi's new hip hop dance for the first time. It was super cool and they even got to show off some of their new tumbling skills!

A Visitor

My Mom came to visit from Montana at the first of June. It was so awesome to have her here! She got to go with us to Shriner's and watch Quinn's therapy, we had BBQ's, went to the dance recital, went out to eat, and just hung out. We went to the Duck pond in Midway one day and it was fun. The kids had a good time playing on the playground and feeding the ducks!

Summer Softball

To say the least, Lexi has been born into a family of softball players. I played all through High School, my sisters played, Cameron played baseball in High School and plays softball two nights a week now. She loves it!! She was on the Dodgers this year and was so lucky to have her dad as her coach! I volunteered Cameron last year to coach soccer and boy was he mad! He hates soccer. But he actually had a lot of fun coaching this year. Every night if you drive by our house, you can see them out in the yard practicing. My dad got Lexi a pitch back and new glove and ball for her birthday and she hasn't stopped playing with it! It is so cute, and she is actually really good. She has pounded the ball over 5th North to the church several times, so beware while driving up 5th!

Luke Party at Whiskey Springs

The Luke side of the family decided to get together for a little picnic on Sunday. It was so much fun and almost everyone was able to come. We ate lots of yummy food, played frisbee, went on hikes, ran through the water, and the boys played football. We decided they are all a little to old to play especially since a few of them got hurt!

All in all, we have had a pretty good summer thus far. We are getting excited for Fair Days and the Derby. And then, it will be time to prepare for school again! I can't believe how fast it goes! Happy Summer Everyone!
